Beugue Sa Bopp Group's story

The Beugue Sa Bopp Group is comprised of eight women living in the same local area who all share the same ambitions for life. Their group president is called Fatou, a married mother. Fatou gained experience in the retail sector through selling vegetables and cosmetic products. She will use this amount to buy vegetables like cabbage, carrot, turnip, eggplant etc. She has over 10 years of experience in this sector and helps her husband pay for their family's daily expenses and their children's school fees. Her day starts a 9 am and finishes at 7 pm. In the future, with the help of this loan, she hopes to diversify her products in order to increase her profits and save some money. Fatou's main project for the future is to open a large stall which sells food products.

In this group: Fatou Diop, Awa, Aminata, Rokhaya, Awa, Toumbou, Ndèye Marième, Boye*
